Amelia C. Adams is the author of twenty-five sweet Western romance novels, the mother of four children, and the eater of chocolate cake and tacos. Many tacos. Too many tacos to count. Because cheese. And meat. Meat and cheese.
She has hit the Amazon bestseller list three times and has the screenshots to prove it. Even though she’s only been publishing Westerns for two years, she plans to do it forever and ever, or until the cows come home, whichever happens first. She credits her own pioneer heritage for this new interest, and is glad that she doesn’t have to wear twelve petticoats to be considered modest.

Although she grew up as far away from the old west as possible, she’s always had a love affair with the men and women who settled the untamed land west of the Mississippi. Glued to TV westerns like Maverick, Rawhide and Gunsmoke, and reading stories of Annie Oakley, Roy Rogers and Rin Tin Tin, it was only natural that when she started writing, she wrote what she loved to watch and read. When she’s not writing or travelling in search of the perfect setting for her next novel, you can usually find her wielding a pair of knitting needles or a pool cue.

The High Stakes Bride by Margery Scott

Chloe Taggart has one goal—to leave Rocky Ridge as soon as possible and see the world. She has no intention of ever being under a man’s thumb, and she has no desire to spend her life cooking and cleaning when she could be sailing the Pacific or touring ancient Greek ruins.

Even though Austin Hayward is content with his life on his ranch, it would be perfect if he had a wife to share it with. Unfortunately, there is only one woman he’s interested in marrying—Chloe Taggart. Chloe and Austin have known each other for years, but she’s never looked at him as anything more than a friend.

When Chloe’s father loses his diner to Austin in a poker game, Austin makes her a proposition—her father will get his diner back, and Austin will get Chloe."

Note: the formatting issues mentioned by some of the reviews have been corrected, and we apologize! :)

Emmeline: Bride of Arkansas by Carra Copelin

Snippet #1:  
Flat Rock Point, Arkansas, 1892
Lincoln Bass glanced around the area of the train depot. From this vantage point on the platform, the town looked much the same as it had when he’d left. The bulk of the businesses and homes sat on the eastern side, the lesser developed side lay off to the west, with the tracks and station slicing through the middle. The entire town was surrounded by timberland made up mostly of pine trees.
What, the hell, am I doing back here?
He’d asked himself this question repeatedly, since he’d received the telegram from his friend and left his home in Little Rock yesterday. But, he knew the answer. He owed Griffin Benning for the very air he breathed and would do anything the man needed to thank him for saving his life. Suddenly, the memories of the accident last year, still too fresh, flooded his mind, and the breeze chilled his body through his sweat-soaked shirt. 

Snippet #2:

Energized after shedding the heavy jacket, Emmeline quickly came out of her bodice and skirts all the way down to her camisole and drawers. She hadn’t felt this carefree since they’d left Philadelphia. Despite the fact she was a grown woman of twenty and a lady, she waltzed about the room, while singing, In the Good Old Summertime. After the last twirl, she bent over to pick her skirt up off the floor.
She heard the door open, and said, “Oh, good, you haven’t gone downstairs yet. I could use some extra hangars.”
When silence greeted her, she turned and sucked in so much air she nearly strangled on her own spit. Coughing and trying to breathe, she covered herself with the deep lavender linen. A tall, sturdy man with a thick chest and broad shoulders filled the doorway. He stared at her but didn’t say anything.
After a few seconds, she found her voice, and finally managed, “Good golly, who are you?”

1 - Emmeline: Bride of Arkansas is the sequel to Laurel: Bride of Arkansas, American Mail-Order Bride, Book 25

2 - I tend to use our family names for my characters. Emmeline, Adeline, and Peter Weidner are names of my husband's family from mid-nineteenth century Philadelphia. Laurel is named for my husband's father, who was from Arkansas.

3 - Griffin Benning, in both Bride of Arkansas books, is a cousin to Ian Benning in my Brides of Texas Code Series.
